SECTION 2 - WARNINGS AND SAFETY MEASURES
SECTION 2 - WARNINGS AND SAFETY MEASURES
***If you are taking COSMIQ on a flight, you MUST turn it off before boarding and make
sure to store it in the pressurized cabin.***
1. PLEASE CAREFULLY READ THE ENTIRE CONTENTS OF THE PRODUCT MANUAL BEFORE
USING THE COSMIQ DIVE COMPANION. Be sure that you fully understand the purpose,
technical functions, settings and limitations of the COSMIQ Dive Companion before you dive
with it. Failure to do so may cause you to misunderstand the instructions and failure to heed
the warnings and instructions may cause you to engage in behavior that might lead to serious
injury, harm, sickness or even death.
2. THE COSMIQ DIVE COMPANION IS INTENDED TO BE USED FOR RECREATIONAL AND
SPORT DIVING ONLY. It is not recommended for professional or technical diving, which require
longer dive times and deeper depths than is recommended for recreational sport dives.
Commercial or professional diving may subject the diver to depths and conditions that result
in an increased risk of decompression illness and/or other pressure-related complications.
Therefore, Deepblu strongly advises that the device not be used for any activities other than
recreational/sport diving.
3. ONLY SCUBA DIVERS TRAINED AND CERTIFIED BY AN INTERNATIONALLY ACCREDITED
DIVE AGENCY IN THE APPROPRIATE USE OF SCUBA EQUIPMENT AND TECHNIQUES,
AND WHO ARE FAMILIAR WITH THE USE AND FUNCTIONS OF DIVE COMPUTERS,
SHOULD USE THE COSMIQ DIVE COMPANION. Using a dive computer is not a substitute
for receiving adequate and proper training. Inadequate or improper training may cause a
diver to engage in behavior that may lead to serious injury or death.
4. ONLY FREEDIVERS TRAINED AND CERTIFIED BY A RECOGNIZED AGENCY IN THE
APPROPRIATE USE OF FREEDIVING TECHNIQUES SHOULD USE THE COSMIQ DIVE
COMPANION. Using a dive computer is not a substitute for receiving adequate and proper
training. Inadequate or improper training may cause a diver to engage in behavior that may
lead to serious injury or death.
5. USING COSMIQ DOES NOT REMOVE THE RISK OF DECOMPRESSION ILLNESS (DCI). The
risk of decompression illness may still be present even with a dive profile based on dive
tables or which is deemed safe by a dive computer. COSMIQ does not take into account
the unique biological characteristics of individual divers, including physiological disposition,
alcohol consumption, dehydration, or use of medication or other drugs, all of which may
cause a diver to be more susceptible to decompression illness. Deepblu strongly advises that
you dive safely within the limits prescribed by dive tables and COSMIQ, and that you consult
a doctor before diving to determine your fitness for diving.
6. THE COSMIQ DIVE COMPANION DOES NOT REPLACE THE NEED FOR OTHER
INSTRUMENTS. COSMIQ is intended to supplement the use of other instruments, including a
depth gauge, pressure gauge, timer and watch. Deepblu further recommends that COSMIQ
be used in conjunction with dive planning based on dive tables.
7. COSMIQ IS INTENDED FOR PERSONAL USE ONLY. It is NOT to be shared among divers
during dives or exchanged between two dives in a series. The information displayed applies
only to the diver who has been using it throughout a dive or series of dives, therefore the
BACK TO INDEX

SECTION 2 - WARNINGS AND SAFETY MEASURES
recorded information will not be accurate for someone who has not been using it continuously.
8. DO NOT USE COSMIQ FOR DIVES DEEPER THAN 40 METERS/130 FEET. Deepblu strongly
recommends that divers do not dive below 40 meters/130 feet, the limits for recreational
diving. Doing so greatly increases the risk of oxygen toxicity and decompression illness.
9. ALWAYS ENSURE THE PROPER FUNCTIONING OF COSMIQ BEFORE DIVING. Before
diving, check the display screen to confirm that information is being displayed clearly. Toggle
between modes to check that it is functioning properly. Additionally, make sure that there is
sufficient battery power to complete your dive. DO NOT dive if the computer’s display is not
clearly visible, if it is frozen in one mode, or if the battery power is low.

• Water Type: COSMIQ does not offer the ability to change the algorithm based on the type
of water you are diving in. The algorithm is programmed to perform calculations based on the
BACK TO INDEX
15
SECTION 4 - OVERVIEW
effects of diving in salt water. If you are planning to dive in fresh water, please note that the depth
readings and decompression calculations will not be 100% accurate. Therefore, we recommend
that you do not use COSMIQ as your primary device if you are diving in freshwater.
WARNING: DO NOT USE COSMIQ AS YOUR PRIMARY DEVICE IF YOU PLAN TO DIVE AT AN
ALTITUDE ABOVE 300M. COSMIQ cannot accurately calculate decompression schedules for dives

measurements and therefore may cause you to dive beyond safe limits, increasing your risk of serious
injury or death.
WARNING: DO NOT ATTEMPT MULTI-GAS DIVING WITH COSMIQ. COSMIQ does not have
the capability to support calculations for multi-gas diving and therefore should only be used for
Standard Air or Nitrox dives.
WARNING: ONLY DIVERS WHO HAVE UNDERGONE SPECIALIZED TRAINING FROM AN
ACCREDITED AGENCY SHOULD ATTEMPT MULTI-GAS DIVING. Diving with two or more gases
poses different risks than those of diving with a single gas mixture. To understand and avoid these
risks, divers should undergo proper training from an internationally recognized agency. Failure to do
so can result in errors that can lead to serious injury or death.

SECTION 5 - INSTRUCTIONS FOR USE
5.1 WATCH MODE
The default surface mode for COSMIQ is Watch Mode. The display screen will enter Standby
automatically after 20 seconds of inactivity in Watch Mode. To turn on the display, press any button.
To navigate to other modes, press the MODE button.
Watch Mode is pre-programmed to display the current time and the current date. You can change
the settings so that COSMIQ will show the date of your last dive instead of the current date by
accessing Settings in the Deepblu app.
5.1.1 Dive Plan Function
The Dive Plan function allows you to prepare for an upcoming dive by calculating how long you
can safely remain at various depths without surpassing no decompression limits and requiring a
decompression stop. As you scroll through the various depths, a corresponding no decompression
limit will show for that depth.
The Dive Plan function can be accessed before your first dive as well as during a surface interval
between dives. During a surface interval, or within 24 hours of a previous dive, COSMIQ takes into
account the calculated residual nitrogen levels in your body when determining no decompression
limits. COSMIQ also takes into consideration the the percentage of oxygen in the gas you will be
breathing, calculating no decompression limits based on the percentage of oxygen currently set in
Scuba Mode.
5.1.2 Planning a Dive
To access the Dive Plan function, press the ADJUST button one time if COSMIQ’s display is in Watch
Mode or two times if it is in Standby. You will hear a beep and the screen will change to show the
word ‘PLAN’ as well as a value for depth and a value for the corresponding no decompression limit.
When you first enter the Dive Plan screen the minimum depth displayed is 9 meters/30 feet. It is
visible in the bottom left corner of the display screen. Press the ADJUST button to scroll though
different depths in increments of 1 meter/3 feet. The deepest depth it will display is 40 meters/135
feet. You can hold the ADJUST button to toggle through the depth and time continuously.
The corresponding no decompression limit is displayed in minutes in the bottom right corner of
the display screen. No decompression limits will be shorter depending on the presence of residual
nitrogen in your body. COSMIQ will show a series of three horizontal dashes ( - - - ) instead of a time
value if the no decompression limit is greater than 300 minutes.
The Dive Plan function will not display depths beyond the no decompression limit or beyond the
maximum operating depth (MOD). If you reach a depth with a corresponding no decompression
limit of zero (0), or if a combination of depth and oxygen level exceeds the safe MOD, you will not be
able to scroll further than that depth. The depth will go back to 9 meters/30 feet and start the cycle
again. You should limit your dive plan to depths shallower than the deepest depth that is displayed
in the Dive Plan screen.
BACK TO INDEX
17
SECTION 5 - INSTRUCTIONS FOR USE
When you are finished using the Dive Plan function, press the MODE button at any time to switch
back to Watch Mode.
WARNING: DO NOT PLAN DIVES DEEPER THAN THOSE FOR WHICH COSMIQ DOES NOT
DISPLAY A NO DECOMPRESSION LIMIT. Doing so greatly increases your chances of exceeding
no decompression limits and may cause decompression sickness or central nervous system oxygen
toxicity and may lead to serious death or injury.
5.2 SCUBA MODE
Scuba Mode is meant to be used for scuba diving and not apnea/freediving. It is used to calculate
depth, dive time, water temperature, no decompression limit, safety stop time and ascent rate.
Additionally, it will calculate the depth and time required for a mandatory decompression stop if the
no decompression limit is exceeded. You can adjust the settings for the level of oxygen depending
on the type of air mixture in your cylinder.
5.2.1 Preparing to Dive
There are two ways to prepare for a dive in Scuba Mode: water activation or manual activation.
Water activation: If Scuba Mode is your default underwater mode, then simply enter in the water
when COSMIQ is in Standby or Watch Mode. COSMIQ will automatically activate Scuba Mode
once you descend past 2 meters / 6.5 feet.
Manual activation: Alternatively, navigate to Scuba Mode using the MODE button. Enter the water
and begin descent while in Scuba Mode.
NOTE: On the surface, COSMIQ refreshes its sensors and captures data at 15 second intervals in
Watch Mode. Therefore, there may be a slight delay between descending below 2 meters/6.5 feet
and Scuba Mode activating.
5.2.2 Adjusting the Oxygen Settings
COSMIQ is programmed with a default oxygen level of 21%. You are able to change the oxygen
level based on the air mixture you will be breathing during the dive – Standard Air or Nitrox - with
the default being 21% and the maximum being 40%. Oxygen levels have to be set on the surface
BEFORE the descent. It is not possible to adjust the oxygen settings during a dive.
There are two ways to adjust the oxygen settings for COSMIQ:
1. Using COSMIQ (see below)
2. Using the Deepblu mobile app (see above section 4.5)
Using COSMIQ to adjust the oxygen settings:
You can change the oxygen settings on COSMIQ based on the air mixture in your cylinder before a
dive begins. Remember to always check that the air mixture in your cylinder matches the percentage
inputted into COSMIQ.
To change the settings for oxygen level, use the MODE button to enter into Scuba Mode. Once
BACK TO INDEX
18
SECTION 5 - INSTRUCTIONS FOR USE
you are in Scuba Mode, press the ADJUST button to change the oxygen level. The default is 21%
and the maximum amount is 40%. Press the ADJUST button repeatedly to achieve the desired
percentage. You can hold the ADJUST button to toggle continuously.
When you reach the correct percentage, press the MODE button to save your changes and return
to the Scuba Mode screen. The Nitrox icon
will be displayed in Scuba Mode when the oxygen
level is set above 21%.
Note: The settings for oxygen level remain the same indefinitely until you change them. So the
default is 21% and will remain so until you change it. If you make a change to 36% before your first
dive, it will remain at 36% for your second and third dives unless you change it.
WARNING: ONLY DIVERS WHO HAVE RECEIVED SPECIALIZED TRAINING FROM A RECOGNIZED
AGENCY SHOULD DIVE WITH NITROX. Diving with Nitrox poses risks that are different from those
associated with using Standard Air, and therefore require specialized training in order to understand
and avoid. Nitrox diving without proper training may result in errors that can lead to death or serious
injury.
WARNING: DO NOT CONDUCT A NITROX DIVE WITHOUT FIRST CHECKING YOUR CYLINDER(S)
AND ENTERING THE OXYGEN PERCENTAGE INTO COSMIQ. Failure to authenticate the contents
of your cylinder and set the appropriate oxygen percentage will cause COSMIQ to calculate and
display inaccurate information.
5.2.3 Safety Factor
The Safety Factor controls the decompression algorithm COSMIQ uses to perform decompression
calculations. It allows you to set the level of conservativeness based on your personal preference and
unique risk factors. There are three levels to choose from: Conservative, Normal and Progressive.
The Safety Factor can only be changed through the Deepblu mobile app. Access Settings in the
main menu of the Deepblu app to adjust the Safety Factor.
5.2.4 Partial Pressure of Oxygen (PPO2)
COSMIQ is originally set to a PPO2 level of 1.4 bar in order to ensure maximum safety. The PPO2
level is adjustable between 1.2 bar and 1.6 bar, in intervals of 0.1 bar. The PPO2 settings can only be
changed through the Deepblu mobile app. Access Settings in the main menu of the Deepblu app
to adjust the PPO2 level.
5.2.5 During a Dive
When COSMIQ detects pressure at 2 meters/6.5 feet it will begin recording dive data and calculating
the decompression schedule for the dive. COSMIQ will lock into Scuba Mode, disabling the MODE
and ADJUST buttons for the duration of the dive. No settings can be changed and no other modes
can be accessed during a dive.
During a dive within the no decompression limit using Standard Air (21% oxygen) the following
information will be displayed on the screen:
• Water temperature (Temp in °C/°F)
BACK TO INDEX
19
SECTION 5 - INSTRUCTIONS FOR USE
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
Current depth (Depth in meters/feet)
Deepest depth reached (Max in meters/feet)
Dive time (Dive Time in hours:minutes)
No decompression limit (No Deco in minutes)
No decompression limit bar (graphic bar on right hand side)
Ascent rate bar (graphic bar on left hand side)
Safety stop time (seconds) and Stop indicator. This will be shown only once COSMIQ detects a
depth of between 3 to 7 meters or 10 to 23 feet.
During a dive within the no decompression limit using Nitrox (above 21% oxygen) all of the above
information will be shown in addition to the Nitrox icon.
5.2.6 Central Nervous System (CNS) Oxygen Toxicity
COSMIQ constantly monitors your exposure to oxygen, by estimating the amount of oxygen in
your body and how it affects your central nervous system (CNS). Your CNS oxygen toxicity level is
calculated in accordance with your exposure to high partial pressure of oxygen (PPO2) levels. It is
represented as a percentage ranging from 0% to 100%. CNS levels reaching 100% are considered
dangerous and should therefore be avoided.
If COSMIQ calculates a CNS level of 80%, the alarm will sound. The letters ‘CNS’ will flash on the
screen along with the arrow indicator instructing you to ascend to a shallower depth. The alarm
will become more frequent if you do not ascend to a shallower depth and the calculated CNS level
increases to 85% or higher.
In the case of a CNS alarm, you should conduct a safety stop and end the dive immediately.
WARNING: DO NOT ALLOW YOUR CNS LEVEL TO REACH 100%. Doing so greatly increases the
risk of oxygen toxicity. Oxygen toxicity may cause your body to suffer from convulsions, which can
possibly lead to drowning.
5.2.7 Maximum Operating Depth (MOD)
COSMIQ also calculates the safe maximum operating depth (MOD) - a depth limit, below which the
PPO2 level in the gas mixture you are breathing may become toxic. The MOD is determined based
on both the PPO2 limit and the percentage of oxygen you’ve set. Diving below the MOD may lead
to oxygen poisoning and should therefore be avoided.
If you exceed the MOD during a dive, the alarm will sound and ‘PO2’ will flash on the screen along
with the arrow indicator instructing you to ascend to a shallower depth. The alarm will continue to
sound until you ascend above the MOD.
In the case of an MOD alarm, you must obey the alarm warnings and ascend to a shallower depth.
Consider ending the dive.
WARNING: DO NOT EXCEED THE MAXIMUM OPERATING DEPTH (MOD). Exceeding the MOD
greatly increases the risk of oxygen toxicity. Oxygen toxicity may cause your body to suffer from
convulsions, which may lead to drowning.

WARNING: ONLY DIVERS WHO HAVE RECEIVED SPECIALIZED TRAINING FROM A RECOGNIZED
AGENCY SHOULD DIVE WITH NITROX. Diving with Nitrox poses risks that are different from those
associated with using Standard Air, and therefore require specialized training in order to understand and
avoid. Nitrox diving without proper training may result in errors that can lead to death or serious injury.
5.2.8 Ascent Rate
COSMIQ constantly monitors your ascent rate at all times throughout a dive. Your ascent rate is
represented by a graphic bar on the left hand side of COSMIQ’s display screen. COSMIQ’s algorithm
considers an ascent rate slower than 12 meters/40 feet per minute to be a safe ascent rate. If the safe
ascent rate is exceeded, the alarm will sound and will continue to beep until you slow your ascent
rate. The ascent rate bar operates according to the table below:
Ascent Rate
Ascent Speed

Rapid ascents faster than 12 meters/40 feet per minute may result in increased chances of
decompression illness.
BACK TO INDEX
21
SECTION 5 - INSTRUCTIONS FOR USE
5.2.9 Safety Stop
COSMIQ is programmed to automatically count a safety stop at the end of each dive. A 3 minute
(180 seconds) safety stop should be conducted between 3 to 7 meters/10 to 23 feet at the end of
every dive. COSMIQ will begin automatically counting the safety stop upon reaching a depth of 7
meters/23 feet.
The Stop Countdown Time will be displayed under the Stop indicator in the bottom right corner of
the display screen when COSMIQ detects a depth of 7 meters/23 feet. It will be counted downwards
in minutes and seconds. The countdown will continue as long as you remain within the range of 3
to 7 meters/10 to 23 feet. If you ascend above or descend below that depth range, the countdown
will pause until you return to the depth range, at which point it will continue the countdown where
it left off.
5.2.10 Exceeding the No Decompression Limit
During a dive in Scuba Mode, the no decompression time limit is visible in the top right hand corner
of COSMIQ’s display screen underneath the ‘No Deco’ indicator. The no decompression limit is also
represented by a graphic bar on the right hand side of COSMIQ’s display screen. The bar represents
the no decompression limit according to the following formula:
NDL Graphic Bar
No Decompression Limit
0 bars
NDL exceeded
1 bar
0~5 min
2 bars
5~15 min 3 bars
15~30 min 4 bars
30~60 min 5 bars
> 60 min COSMIQ will sound the alarm when you are nearing the no decompression limit. The alarm will
begin to sound 3 minutes before the no decompression limit is reached. It will then sound every
minute until the no decompression limit is exceeded.
BACK TO INDEX
22
SECTION 5 - INSTRUCTIONS FOR USE
In the event of exceeding the no decompression limit, the letters ‘CEL’ will be flash on the screen.
Additionally, the following information will be displayed in order to assist you with safely performing
a mandatory decompression stop:
•
•
•
•
Ceiling indicator
Ceiling Depth
Stop indicator
Stop Countdown Time
The Ceiling Depth value will be shown under the Ceiling indicator in the bottom left corner of the
display screen. The Ceiling Depth value represents the shallowest depth to which you can ascend
to in order to complete a decompression stop. Do not ascend above this depth before completing
your decompression stop.
Additionally, the Stop Countdown Time will flash on the display screen under the Stop indicator, in
the bottom right corner of the display screen. The arrow icon will appear instructing you to ascend
to the ceiling depth.
The alarm will beep 10 times for a duration of 20 seconds and will continue this cycle every 10
seconds for a total of 3 minutes. The Ceiling Depth and Stop Countdown Time will both flash at the
same time.
If you begin to ascend within 3 minutes of exceeding the no decompression limit, the Ceiling Depth
and Stop Countdown Time values may disappear from the screen if COSMIQ calculates that your
nitrogen levels have receded back to safe levels. You should still conduct a regular safety stop at the
end of your dive.
If you do not begin to ascend within 3 minutes of exceeding the NDL, the decompression stop
becomes mandatory. The Ceiling Depth value and the Stop Countdown Time will continue to flash
until you ascend to the ceiling depth and conduct a decompression stop.
Obey the warnings and ascend to the ceiling depth to complete a decompression stop in accordance
with the time shown on the Stop Countdown Time. Do not ascend above the ceiling depth until the
Stop Countdown Time has elapsed. Once the stop countdown time is over, it is safe to ascend to
the next ceiling depth (if required) or to the surface if it is safe.
WARNING: STAY WITHIN THE NO DECOMPRESSION LIMIT AND AVOID DIVES THAT REQUIRE
DECOMPRESSION STOPS. Deepblu advises against exceeding no decompression time limits and
dives that require decompression stops. In the event that you exceed the no decompression time
limit and a decompression stop is required, you should begin your decompression stop immediately.
Remember to never ascend above the ceiling depth until your decompression stop is complete.
WARNING: IN THE EVENT OF EXCEEDING THE NO DECOMPRESSION LIMIT, ALWAYS CONDUCT
A DECOMPRESSION STOP AND DO NOT ASCEND ABOVE THE CEILING DEPTH UNTIL YOU
HAVE COMPLETED THE REQUIRED STOP(S). Follow the instructions above, and conduct the
necessary decompression stop in accordance with the Ceiling Depth and Stop Countdown Time
values displayed on COSMIQ.

SECTION 5 - INSTRUCTIONS FOR USE
5.2.11 After Diving
Upon surfacing from a dive, COSMIQ will remain in Scuba Mode for 2 minutes. If you surface for less
than 2 minutes and then descend again, COSMIQ will consider this a continuation of the previous
dive and the calculations and measurements will continue from where they left off.
After 2 minutes passes, COSMIQ will begin to count the Surface Interval Time. It will be displayed
on the Watch Mode screen and counted upwards in hours and minutes. Any additional descent will
be considered a new dive.
When no pressure is detected by COSMIQ for 3 minutes upon surfacing from a dive, it will switch
automatically to Watch Mode.
The dive data recorded during each dive will be logged and accessible in Log Mode.
5.2.12 No Dive Time and No Fly Time
Upon surfacing from a dive, COSMIQ calculates and displays a No Dive Time value underneath the
No Dive icon
in the bottom left corner of the display screen. This value is the minimum amount
of time you must spend on the surface before conducting another dive.
The length of the No Dive Time depends on calculations of residual nitrogen levels in your body. The
No Dive Time will be counted downwards in intervals of half an hour, so 30 minutes is represented
as 0.5 and 1 hour is represented as 1.0.
If your No Dive Time is longer than 30 minutes COSMIQ will display the error screen with the letters
‘SUF’ and will go into lockdown after you reach the surface. The letters ‘SUF’ are a reminder that you
should stay on the surface in order to allow for nitrogen desaturation. The length of the lockdown
time will depend on calculations of residual nitrogen levels in your body, and is equal to the No Dive
Time value.
will also be shown in the bottom right corner of the display screen after every
The No Fly icon
dive. The No Fly Time is based on the calculations of your desaturation time according to your
actual dive profile. The No Fly Time will be counted downwards every half hour.
WARNING: DO NOT DIVE WHEN THE NO DIVE ICON AND A NO DIVE TIME VALUE IS SHOWN.
Diving while COSMIQ displays the No Dive icon and a No Dive Time value may result in increased
risk of decompression illness, serious injury or death.
WARNING: DO NOT BOARD A PLANE IF THE ‘NO FLY’ ICON IS SHOWING ON THE COSMIQ
DISPLAY SCREEN. Flying while COSMIQ displays the No Fly symbol may result in serious injury or
death.
5.3 GAUGE MODE
When diving with Gauge Mode, only depth, time and temperature are displayed. No decompression
calculations are done in Gauge Mode. Use this mode when COSMIQ is being used as a secondary
dive computer or as a depth gauge and timer only.
BACK TO INDEX
24
SECTION 5 - INSTRUCTIONS FOR USE
5.3.1- Gauge Mode - Preparing to Dive
There are two ways to prepare for a dive using Gauge Mode: water activation and manual activation.
Water activation: If Gauge Mode is your default underwater mode, then simply enter in the water
when COSMIQ is in Standby or Watch Mode. COSMIQ will automatically activate Gauge Mode
once you descend past 2 meters / 6.5 feet.
Manual activation: If Gauge Mode is not your default underwater mode, you must activate it
manually. Navigate to Gauge Mode using the MODE button. Enter the water and begin descent
while in Gauge Mode.
Note: When doing manual activation, remember to navigate to Gauge Mode 3 minutes or less
before you begin your descent. If you set COSMIQ to Gauge Mode more than 3 minutes before
you descend, COSMIQ will revert back to Watch Mode, and will therefore automatically switch to
the default underwater mode upon detection of pressure.
NOTE: On the surface, COSMIQ refreshes its sensors and captures data at 15 second intervals.
Therefore, there may be a slight delay between descending below 2 meters/6.5 feet and Gauge
Mode activating.
5.3.2 Gauge Mode - During a Dive
Once you descend past 2 meters/6.5 feet, COSMIQ will lock into Gauge Mode. The MODE and
ADJUST buttons will be disabled for the duration of the dive. No settings can be changed and no
other modes can be accessed during the dive.
During a dive using Gauge Mode, the following information will be displayed:
- Current depth
- Dive time
- Water temperature
- Ascent rate bar
5.3.3 Gauge Mode - After Diving
Upon surfacing from a dive, COSMIQ will remain in Scuba Mode for 2 minutes. If you surface for less
than 2 minutes and then descend again, COSMIQ will consider this a continuation of the previous
dive and the calculations and measurements will continue from where they left off.
After a dive in Gauge Mode, COSMIQ will begin to count the Surface Interval Time. It will be
displayed on the screen when COSMIQ is in Watch Mode.
Dive data recorded during the dive will be saved in Log Mode.
When no pressure is detected by COSMIQ for 3 minutes upon surfacing from a dive, it will switch
automatically to Watch Mode.
5.3.4 Lockdown for 24 Hours
After completing a dive in Gauge Mode, Scuba Mode will be locked for the next 24 hours.
25
BACK TO INDEX
SECTION 5 - INSTRUCTIONS FOR USE
The letters ‘SUF’ will appear on the screen when COSMIQ is in Scuba Mode and it will not be
functional. COSMIQ will not be able to perform any decompression, saturation or desaturation
calculations for 24 hours after a dive in Gauge Mode. If you attempt a dive while Scuba Mode is
locked, it will automatically switch to Gauge Mode upon detection of pressure.
Additionally, the letters ‘SUF’ will appear on the screen when you access the Dive Plan function and
it will not be functional either.
Gauge Mode may still be used during this period of time.
5.4 FREEDIVE MODE
Freedive Mode is designed specifically for apnea/freediving. During a dive, COSMIQ measures the
current depth, dive time and water temperature. You can set a Max Depth and/or Max Time alarm.
5.4.1 - Freedive Mode - Preparing to Dive
There are two ways to prepare for a dive in Freedive Mode: water activation or manual activation.
Water activation: If Freedive Mode is your default underwater mode, then simply enter in the
water when COSMIQ is in Standby or Watch Mode. COSMIQ will automatically activate Freedive
Mode once you descend past 2 meters / 6.5 feet.
Manual activation: If Freedive Mode is not your default underwater mode, you must activate it
manually. Navigate to Freedive Mode using the MODE button. Enter the water and begin descent
while in Freedive Mode.
NOTE: On the surface, COSMIQ refreshes its sensors and captures data at 15 second intervals.
Therefore, there may be a slight delay between descending below 2 meters/6.5 feet and Freedive
Mode activating.
When you navigate to Freedive Mode, COSMIQ will stay in Freedive Mode for 30 minutes. It
will enter Standby after 10 minutes, turning off the screen, but it will remain active in Freedive
Mode, ready to activate upon detection of pressure. After 30 minutes of inactivity in Freedive
Mode COSMIQ will revert back to Watch Mode.
5.4.2 Setting Alarms for Maximum Depth and Maximum Time
You can set alarms for maximum time and maximum depth in Freedive Mode. There are two ways
to set the Max Depth and Max Time in Freedive Mode:
1. Using COSMIQ (see below)
2. Using the Deepblu mobile app (see above section 4.5)
Using COSMIQ to set Max Depth and/or Max Time alarms:
To set the Max Depth and Max Time alarms using COSMIQ, navigate to Freedive Mode using the
MODE button. Once in Freedive Mode, press the ADJUST button to access the maximum depth
settings. The minimum is 15 meters/49 feet and the maximum is 80 meters/265 feet. Press the

ADJUST button repeatedly to achieve the desired depth. Each time you press ADJUST, the depth
will increase by 5 meters/16 feet. When you reach the desired depth, press the MODE button to
save your changes.
Next, press the ADJUST button to set the maximum time. Press the ADJUST button repeatedly to
achieve the desired time. The minimum is 30 seconds and the maximum is 3 minutes. Each time you
press ADJUST, the time will increase by 10 seconds. Press the MODE button to save your changes
and return to Freedive Mode.
You can hold the ADJUST button to toggle through the depth and time continuously.
5.4.3 Freedive Mode - During a Dive
Once pressure is detected, COSMIQ will lock into Freedive Mode. The MODE and ADJUST buttons
will be disabled for the duration of the dive. No settings can be changed and no other modes can
be accessed during the dive.
During a dive using Freedive Mode, the following information will be displayed:
- Current depth
- Dive time
- Water temperature
During a dive, once you reach the depth set on your Max Depth alarm, the alarm will beep
continuously until you ascend above that depth.
When you reach the dive time set on your Max Time alarm, the alarm will sound for 6 cycles of 3
beeps per cycle.
5.4.4 Freedive Mode - Surface Interval
Upon surfacing from a dive in Freedive Mode, COSMIQ will begin to count the Surface Interval
Time. It will be displayed on the display screen in Freedive Mode and Watch Mode.
COSMIQ will calculate a safe Surface Interval Time for you based on the profile of your last dive.
The Surface Interval Time is calculated according to a formula that is designed to ensure maximum
safety. The formula is as follows:
Surface Interval Time = (max depth / 10 + 1) x dive time
An alarm will sound halfway through the surface interval, as well as at the end of the surface interval.
For example, if you dove to 30 meters/99 feet for a total of 2 minutes, your safe Surface Interval Time
will be 8 minutes. The first alarm will sound 4 minutes after your dive. The second alarm will sound
after 8 minutes.
COSMIQ considers the minimum safe Surface Interval Time to be 3 minutes.
For example, if you dove to 15 meters/50 feet for a total of 1 minute, technically your safe Surface
Interval Time will be 2 minutes and 30 seconds, but COSMIQ will count your Surface Interval Time
BACK TO INDEX
27
SECTION 5 - INSTRUCTIONS FOR USE
as 3 minutes. The first alarm will sound at 1 minute and 30 seconds, and the second alarm will sound
at 3 minutes.
5.4.5 Freedive Mode - After Diving
After 30 minutes of inactivity in Freedive Mode, COSMIQ will switch automatically to Watch Mode
to display the current time and Surface Interval Time. The deepest depth you dove to and your dive
time will be shown in Freedive Mode after the dive.
Dive data recorded during the dive will be logged in Log Mode.The No Fly icon
Time will also be displayed, counting down for 24 hours from the last dive.

5.4.6 Mixing Scuba Diving and Freediving
Deepblu recommends that you do not attempt to mix scuba diving and freediving on the same
day. As a result, if you attempt to enter Freedive Mode after completing a dive in Scuba Mode,
the letters ‘NO FrEE’ will appear on the screen. The purpose of this warning is to remind you of the
dangers associated with mixing freediving and compressed gas diving on the same day.
You may still use COSMIQ for a freedive, and Freedive Mode will still function properly, but Deepblu
strongly recommends against freediving on the same day as a scuba diving. Remember, you are
responsible for your own safety.
WARNING: FREEDIVING AND SCUBA DIVING SHOULD NOT BE CONDUCTED ON THE SAME DAY.
Conducting freedives and scuba dives on the same day increases your risk of decompression illness.
5.5 LOG MODE
Dive data measured from previous dives is recorded and saved in Log Mode. You can only access
the Log Mode when you are above the surface.
To access previous dive data, navigate to the Log Mode screen using the MODE button. Press the
ADJUST button to toggle between your dive logs. Dives are logged in chronological order ranging
from the most recent to the oldest dive. So log #1 is your most recent dive, and the highest number
will be your oldest dive.
The following information will be displayed for each dive:
- Water temperature (Temp in °C/°F)
- Dive time (Dive Time in hours:minutes)
- Deepest depth (Depth in meters/feet)
- Time in (hour:minutes)
- Current date (month/day)
- Log number
COSMIQ will save dive data for up to 25 dives at a time. Dive logs cannot be deleted from COSMIQ
itself. Once 25 dives are logged, the newest log will overwrite the oldest log. Deepblu suggests that
you upload dive data to the Deepblu app as often as possible so you don’t lose any of your log data.

5.7 DIVE ALARMS
COSMIQ uses visual and audible alarms to warn you of potentially dangerous situations while diving.
It also includes the option of setting depth and time alarms according to your own preference. It is
very important for you to understand the purpose and function of the alarm warnings in order for
you to take the appropriate action and to avoid danger. There are many different situations where
an alarm will sound. See below for a quick summary of each alarm and how it works.

SECTION 9 - GLOSSARY
SECTION 9 – GLOSSARY
Ascent rate
The speed (measured in meters/feet per minute) at which a diver ascends
towards the surface.
Ceiling Depth
The shallowest depth to which a diver can ascend in order to complete a
mandatory decompression stop.
Central nervous sys- A measurement of the level of oxygen exposure in the body’s central nervous system. The CNS oxygen toxicity level is expressed as a percentage.
tem (CNS) oxygen
toxicity
A CNS level of 100% is considered extremely dangerous.
Decompression
illness (DCI)
Illness that results from a reduction in the ambient pressure surrounding
one’s body and the formation of nitrogen bubbles in the blood. DCI encompasses two diseases, decompression sickness (DCS) and arterial gas
embolism (AGE).
Dive series
A number of repetitive dives completed within a day or over a number of
days.
Dive time
The amount of time that elapses between the beginning of a dive and the
end of a dive.
Maximum operating The depth limit which the PPO2 level exceeds the maximum allowable level, based on the limit set (1.2 bar to 1.6 bar). Diving below the MOD may
depth (MOD)
expose the diver to unsafe PPO2 levels.
Nitrox
Also called Enriched Air Nitrox, a mixture of nitrogen and oxygen used as
a breathing gas by divers which contains a higher proportion of oxygen
than is normally contained in Standard Air (above 21%).
No decompression
limit (NDL)
The maximum amount of time a diver may remain at a certain depth before requiring a decompression stop.
No Dive Time
Minimum amount of time a diver should wait before beginning another
dive.
No Fly Time
Minimum amount of time the diver should wait before embarking on a
flight.
Oxygen level
The percentage of oxygen contained in a breathing gas.
BACK TO INDEX
34
SECTION 9 - GLOSSARY
Partial pressure of
oxygen (PPO2)
The total pressure exerted by oxygen in a breathing mix. It is a measurement of the concentration of oxygen in a gas mixture. PPO2 levels are determined by the percentage of oxygen in a gas mixture and the depth at
which a diver breathes the gas. A PPO2 level above 1.6 bar is considered
extremely dangerous and may be toxic.
Residual nitrogen
The amount of excess nitrogen remaining in a diver’s body after one or
more dives.
Safety Factor
The level of conservativeness of the decompression algorithm. This allows
the user to select a standard decompression algorithm, a conservative
algorithm or a progressive algorithm.
Stop Countdown
Time
The amount of time required to complete a safety stop or a mandatory
decompression stop.
Surface interval
The amount of time that elapses between surfacing from a dive and beginning a new dive.
